I read somewhere that 200,000 people sighed up for this. If I recall it is a one way mission.

No, you didn't.

But then, one can't miss things that he/she can't even imagine. Yes, it was a more muscular existence, but it was the only existence that anyone could imagine.

If they'd had a chance to have anything to alleviate their need to work so hard, they would've taken it. Quickly.
